Potty training…perhaps some of the most feared words in the world of parenting…BUT…they are hot button words in our house lately. Part of this is because our mighty QT has been showing an increased interest in using the potty and we have all the tools and “tricks of the trade” ready to go.
This has also caused increased conversation with Dalton about making it through the night and keeping his pull-up dry. He never wears one during the day…hasn’t for about 4 years now. So…I talked at length to him last night at bedtime about getting up to use the bathroom and then getting back in bed. He was so proud of himself…but not nearly as proud as I was of him!! Major accomplishment for him! This achievement also happens to coincide with his mastery of one of his Brain Balance primitive reflex suppression exercises!! Woot woot!!! We had JUST discussed this exact thing during his progress report on Wednesday evening! WOW!!!
And then…Jasen put him on the transport for school this morning…and he came back inside with a perplexed look on his face. I asked him what was on his mind…and he told me that Dalton didn’t have his regular driver or his regular van…and he didn’t outwardly react to it. He just got in and buckled up…IN A DIFFERENT SEAT!! Now…I know that some of you reading my blog are probably like…”Yeah, and???” But our history with this type of “change” has been nightmarish to say the least. This type of change typically results in throwing himself down on the pavement, banging his head on the ground and on the van, screaming, hitting and kicking, biting and ultimately leads to him not being able to ride the transport to school and sometimes not being able to recover enough to be able to handle school that day. Hence the title of this blog…WHAT JUST HAPPENED?!?! Those were Jasen’s exact words as he started to tell me what happened and marked 3 new HUGE marks of progress for Dalton!!
Will NEVER be able to say this enough…BRAIN BALANCE IS LIFE CHANGING and the program really works!! Individual results may vary…but we give it 220%…EVERY…SINGLE…DAY… So…OUR results are helping to change his life for the better and the lives of everyone he touches.
